The Indian firing across the LoC on Thursday was "deliberate" and had been "planned beforehand", Pakistan Defence Minister Khawaja Asif said.

Condemning the Indian firing which killed two Pakistani soldiers and injured nine, Asif said the Indian forces fired from small weapons in three sectors of the Line of Control (LoC).

The Pakistan Army gave a "befitting response" to the Indian firing, an official statement quoted the minister as saying.

Asif made no reference to the "surgical strikes" India said it carried out on terrorist launch pads on the LoC.

In a separate statement, Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif condemned what he called India's "naked aggression".
